Concurrent Engineering

How it was used

  • The game was played in groups of 3-5 students in three rounds (a 10-20 minutes) with a short introduction before and a short reflective session after each round. 
  • No preparations were required from the students, but they were advised to read an article on managing information flows in a project. 

Comments and experiences

Student comment: In the lectures, we learned about concurrent engineering and through the project game we were able to experience the benefit of utilizing concurrent engineering and fast-tracking in through practical simulation of a realistic situation. The results of the game got better for each round and so did of understanding of the phenomenon.
